Charleston Sail is about fun. You may participate by, steering, trimming sails, keeping a lookout for other vessels and of course dolphin spotting. Just sunning yourself on the foredeck and hanging out with your friends is relaxing too. Being aboard “New Horizon” is the way to capture great photos of cargo ships, sunsets, graceful yachts and sea life. We use various harbor routes of up to 12 nautical miles, which are determined by wind and tide. Many of our customers have never sailed before and end up having a great time learning how a yacht like ours catches the wind and moves. To add to your enjoyment bring your cooler of wine or beer, we can supply the plastic cups.
Life jackets are on hand for children and adults. We recommend wearing sneakers or sandals that cover your toes. Sunglasses and sun block are advisable too. We have a toilet on board and a cabin to take a rest. Charleston Sail’s 3 hour harbor tour gives you the best time to take in most features, with a close up view of the mighty Ravenel bridge or old Fort Sumter from the civil war. We’ll sail close to commercial wharves and historic waterfront areas. The city marina with its luxury yachts, grand old houses around Charleston Battery, the harbor pilot’s base, the US Navy carrier “Yorktown” and Castle Pinckney are just some of the sights. We provide a historical commentary.
